We have four kids enrolled at the Academy and we've been so thankful for this wonderful school! I always thought that my children would likely go to public school, but due to the creation of the Academy and their affordable tuition, we've been blessed with a great private education with an emphasis on God's Word! I'm consistently blown away with the things my kids are learning and the quality and character that's being developed in my children. I always recommend the Academy to people I know because it's been such a blessing to our family!

I love the Academy. I am a parent of a 6 and 7 year old who love learning due to the innovate, fun, educational, spiritual, and social environment. I love that my daughters are getting to learn the Bible and apply it to daily life. The academy helps your child excel in their strengths while also helping to develop those areas that may take more time. Students are able to learn and be challenged while also not being made to feel bad or behind if they aren`t at a place academically that is a normal standard. Students are seen as holistic people and teachers/administration really get to know the kids and are there to serve them. Lastly the meal program is the best, it introduces real foods to my kids and their food preferences have grown since being at the Academy.

This is a fantastic school filled with caring staff. Each teacher our children had to have been sensitive to their needs as both a student and a person and has been committed to bettering them.

I LOVE this academy! The teachers here love the Lord and are living out their calling to educate the next generation that knows the Lord and Focus on how to be God's kids in this world. My own Private education left me discontented, the debt it put my parents in, and the inadequate feeling of being confident in anything that was taught to me. I was Just on repeat of my class notes without really understanding the content. But! The Academy for GOD practices so much of what is taught in the classroom. The cutting edge Academics, focus on spirituality, and the friendships made have been a huge blessing to our family. We now have three kids enrolled and I'm so thankful for this school and their teachers who work hard to please the Lord rather than meeting some quota.

This school is run by some wonderful people;Unfortunately, they do not have much business educating students. My student's experience with this school consisted of fun activities and I being a naïve parent assumed they were just having fun with the curriculum but unfortunately since we moved away from the Nashville area and enrolled in a different school what I have come to find out is my student is light years behind their grade level. My thought is now that there is no curriculum or the curriculum they employed is part of some plan to raise children who want to support the non-profit in some manner which is so odd to me but that's what it feels like... a grooming ground to create more students to go into their obscure university model idea. Again, I have no doubt that this organization that does work throughout the world has a strong conviction and a good heart in doing what they are doing but if you're looking for an education that will afford your kids the opportunity to go into a more mainstream university at any point I would steer clear of this school.
